Student Research Expo

Student Research Expo Winners for 2020:

The 2020 Student Research Exposition was conducted as an online event October 20 - 23. The online format gave a different flavor, but the expo was (as it always is) a great showcase of the excellent work done by student researchers here at the University of Idaho. The awards for outstanding entries as selected by our panel of judges are:

Undergraduate category

  • Garrison Cox (mentor: Tanya Miura), Attenuation of mouse hepatitis virus induced acute respiratory distress syndrome like disease via rhinovirus coinfection in a murine model
  • Madi Thurston (mentor: Margrit von Braun), Spatial analysis of soil lead exposures from lead poisoning tragedy in Nigerian mining

Graduate category

  • Jonathan Erdman (mentor: Renee Love), The taxonomy and phylogenetic implications of a mammoth hybrid from southeastern Idaho
  • Jeremy May (mentor: Frank Cheng), Tailoring the electrochemical hypochlorite sensitivity of GUITAR with electro-amination

Thank you to all of our expo participants, and to their faculty mentors as well. Finally, thank you to our distinguished panel of judges for their careful work evaluating the entries. See you at next year's expo!
